Do we have to earn this patch separate from other things that we have completed in our troop?
This is where double dipping counts!! As you complete a program, project, field trip, scouting badges, and more, it covers one of the requirements in this program. This patch program is just a guide for items to complete or have completed for the year. We must all admit that if we follow the patch program that we are creating well rounded troops by offering them a variety of activities to complete. Therefore that makes you a super leader and super troop by giving them the opportunity to grow.
Where do I begin, and what counts?
1) Complete an outdoor activity
(check this off if you have did anything outdoors such as: camping, hiking, bird watching etc)
2) Complete an artistic activity.
(Any art project such as: drawing, painting, visit an art gallery, making cards, scrapbooking, etc)
3) Complete a musical activity.
(Sing carols, nutcracker, make instruments)
4) Complete a cooking activity.
(Make a gingerbread house,visit a restaurant, create a snack or trail mix or enjoy international food.
5) Complete a cultural activity
